CAPE TOWN – The Sharks have made one change to their starting side to face Western Province in their Currie Cup match at Newlands, in Cape Town, on Saturday.

Flank Jacques Vermeulen comes in to replace Luke Stringer in the number six jersey, while, among the replacements, Leolin Zas has been included as Sbu Nkosi is on Springbok duty.

Meanwhile, Springbok prop Coenie Oosthuizen once again features on the bench after return from a 10-month layoff due to injury.
